Wonderful image Nikki! Nice effects! I like how there is one tulip that is a different color it draws your attention to the whole scene. Beautiful Work.

Super job, recommendation would be to rework your oldies/favs...because I'm sure you're doing new things in the darkroom. That will keep things fresh, versus just resubmitting...or, you can venture outside in the minus zero weather and shoot some barns with me! :-)

Not sure how you reworked it, texture layers I suppose... but whatever the case, the outcome is outstanding. Great job!
